Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Annual percentage rate (APR)

    The annual interest rate

  • Chord of a conic

    A line segment with endpoints on the conic

  • Component form of a vector

    If a vector’s representative in standard position has a terminal point (a,b) (or (a, b, c)) , then (a,b) (or (a, b, c)) is the component form of the vector, and a and b are the horizontal and vertical components of the vector (or a, b, and c are the x-, y-, and z-components of the vector, respectively)

  • Ellipse

    The set of all points in the plane such that the sum of the distances from a pair of fixed points (the foci) is a constant

  • Head minus tail (HMT) rule

    An arrow with initial point (x1, y1 ) and terminal point (x2, y2) represents the vector <8x 2 - x 1, y2 - y19>

  • Intercepted arc

    Arc of a circle between the initial side and terminal side of a central angle.

  • Mapping

    A function viewed as a mapping of the elements of the domain onto the elements of the range

  • Multiplicative inverse of a complex number

    Length of 1 minute of arc along the Earth’s equator.

  • Order of magnitude (of n)

    log n.

  • Parameter

    See Parametric equations.

  • Richter scale

    A logarithmic scale used in measuring the intensity of an earthquake.

  • Root of an equation

    A solution.

  • Secant

    The function y = sec x.

  • Summation notation

    The series a nk=1ak, where n is a natural number ( or ?) is in summation notation and is read "the sum of ak from k = 1 to n(or infinity).” k is the index of summation, and ak is the kth term of the series
